Which national team did Tim Paine, who recently retired from domestic cricket, formerly captain?
  • Pakistan
  • South Africa
  • New Zealand
  • Australia
Answer- D
After playing his final Sheffield Shield first-class match for Tasmania against Queensland, Tim Paine, the former captain of the Australian test cricket team, has announced his retirement from cricket.

Paine captained the Australian team in 23 tests from 2018 to 2021 and played a total of 35 tests in his career. He took over the captaincy after Steve Smith was removed from the role due to the ball-tampering scandal during Australia's 2018 tour of South Africa.
